Shopaholic

Confessions of a Shopaholic - possibly one of the worst movies I've seen.  Pretty sure, Last Action Hero comes a close second (the only movie I've ever walked out of).  Anyway, I digress... Not to mention I'm totally of the point!

I'm naughty, naughty!  My ebay obsession has transcended across to Etsy.  I've kept my eye on a few things over the past year or so, but never dove in to make a purchase.  Yesterday, I crossed that line.

I'm obsessed with jewellery... Art Deco pieces are my main weakness, but it extends to anything silver and stunning.  Here are the naughty, naughty purchases I made yesterday! 


I've always, always wanted a Tree of Life pendant, but never really found one that I've fallen in love with... Oh except one I saw a couple of months back at the Bello markets, but Micko was there so I couldn't make a sly purchase.




This one was irrestible!  So cute!  I don't usually wear gold, but I like the contrast in this piece.  This seller had heaps of gorgeous and delicate jewellery - I could totally have gone overboard here, but I limited myself to 2 items.  It was super hard to cut them back - thought I was going to burst a blood vessel in my forehead from all the serious consideration!



When I was a wee one, I used to have a silver brooch with my name engraved and a bluebird of happiness - you know those blue enamel birds set in silver or gold that were big in the late 70s/early 80s.  I also had a matching necklace and earrings.  Of late, I've wanted to find them or buy myself a new one.  This comes close, but it's a little more modern and it features my favourite colour - red!  This was done by the same seller as the previous piece... See!  B-e-a-utiful!

I think I have a new obsession!  Uh-oh!
